Talk:Delbert the Hamster Software
I'm confused, and the listings on Baf's Guide aren't making it clear either. If I had to guess, I'd say that this was a brand name within a company, not a person or author with a misleading pseudonym. If I'm right, this more properly belongs under Publishers, not People. -- David Welbourn 11:25, 5 Dec 2005 (Central Standard Time)
- This article should be filed with Developers (or somesuch), since the company was solely responsible for software development, not publishing (like Infocom and Legend). I've already used the developer: label (distinct from author or publisher) in a few game references. The header Author Credits isn't applicable either, but since neither Infocom nor Legend Entertainment provide a list games, we could leave them out altogether. --Mara 06:13, 28 July 2006 (EST)
I don't know if we should create a "Developers" category; maybe. If we do, should Magnetic Scrolls, for instance, be in that category instead of Category:Publishers? After all, they were published by Rainbird (later by Virgin).
But I think every publisher (and developer) page should provide a list of games. The list for Infocom is at Infocom games; I think it should be added to the Infocom page instead. It's just useful to know all the games of a publisher. --Eriorg 06:46, 4 August 2006 (EST)
It may not be relevant still but Delbert the Hamster (as well as being a pseudonym that Scott Denyer used when writing the Arnold the Adventurer series for Zenobi) was also a completely independent home-run label. The DTH adventures were eventually republished by Zenobi which regularly causes confusion. See http://www.garethpitchford.co.uk/documents/Delbert_Games.pdf for details.
